On July 20, the dreams of 36 young women came true.
Each year approximately 80 to 100 Rangerette hopefuls strive for a freshman position on the world-famous collegiate dance/ drill team line.
All Rangerette hopefuls attend pre-training, a four-day learning opportunity leading up to tryouts. Each candidate was required to learn one field high-kick routine, one field jazz routine and several other combinations to perform throughout the week.
The Rangerettes were the first of their kind when they began in 1940 as a vision of the late Gussie Nell Davis.
